Administrative history

The Deputy Judge Advocate General was first attached to the 1st Contingent, Canadian Expeditionary Forces in December 1914. The General Officer Commanding the 1st Contingent, C.E.F. made an application to the Army Council in London for a Canadian officer experienced in military law to be attached as a Deputy Judge Advocate General. He was to act as an advisor on the Rules of Procedure for courts martial. Canada was required to pay for the officer although the British had overall control of discipline among Canadians.
